Swamishri blessed the assembly after his morning puja, “To serve the world people become doctors, engineers and acquire other qualifications, but Yogiji Maharaj said that Satsang is the college of brahmavidya. God has blessed us with a human birth, so we should live and endeavour in such a way that God and his Sadhu are pleased and grant us moksha. Human birth is not for enjoying the worldly sense pleasures. Our culture teaches us to respect our parents, teachers and guests.” Swamishri further added that one should not keep bad company, and as satsangis follow the Shikshapatri and understand the knowledge of Akshar-Purushottam according to the Vachanamrut.
